We are very excited to celebrate our next feature baby - Nate! We first met Nate and his parents in Mini Movers class when he was four month old. He already loved tummy time, but was able to learn some other fun challenges when on his tummy and back. By the time we saw him the next month in class, he was starting to get his hands free for sitting! After three months of Mini Movers classes, Nate was ready to take on a Master Movers series! He started crawling, pulling up to stand, and cruising. By the end, he was taking a few independent steps and had his first birthday!! We really enjoyed getting to know Nate and his village. We had the pleasure of seeing him, his parents, and many other family members along the way! This little guy is thriving with all the love that surrounds him, and he loves to be the center of attention!
We are excited to announce our next feature baby -- Nora! We first met Nora and her mother Johanna at Baby + Co's new mom's group. She and Nora's father Vince signed her up for her first Mini Movers series when she was not yet 3 months old. Nora became a pro at tummy time and was learning how to sit and take weight for standing during that three-month series. She started her next series the following month, and soon had mastered sitting and became mobile on her tummy, switching over to Master Movers by the final class in that series! She has a few more Master Movers classes under her belt now, and last time we saw her, she was crawling, pulling up to stand, and starting to stand without support! It's only a matter of time before this little one is taking off walking independently!!
Babies On The MOVE classes will be offered at Grow, The Family Boutique in Raleigh, NC this Saturday, May 21st. Join us for a MINI MOVERS class for babies age 0-6 months at 10:30 AM or a MASTER MOVERS class for babies from age 7 months up until they start taking their first steps at 11:30 AM.
Babies begin building strength from the day that they are born. Parents can help their babies master new skills and learn to enjoy movement from an early age. These classes will teach you how to position, carry, and play with your baby to encourage them to move and progress to the next milestone. The casual and comfortable environment encourages parent and child interaction while learning from expert physical therapists in a social setting. Classes are customized to the needs of the parents and the developmental stage of the infants attending.
Grow is located at 2885 Jones Franklin Road in Raleigh, NC. Contact Grow directly at 919-803-3521 to register for these events.
Thanks to all who came out for our MINI MOVERS baby classes this weekend on Friday and Sunday in Morrisville, NC. We loved seeing some familiar faces as well as meeting lots of new ones. The babies in both classes were amazing this weekend! We focused on playing on their backs, playing on their sides, and helping them roll. Of course we also talked about the dreaded tummy time! I am pleased to say that everyone had a chance to play on their tummy happily, even if it was just for a little bit! It was really fun to see the new tricks that our friends who attended last month had learned. We had such a great time teaching the class, that we completely forgot to take pictures to post. Baby brain must be contagious! We look forward to seeing everyone next month!
